Best Western Muthu Queens Oban Hotel
Ranked #4 of 13 Hotels in Oban
Reviewed 29 March 2012

lovely hotel the staff are the friendliest i have met in a hotel we had a room at the back which was nice and quite the floorboards above was a bit noisy but did not bother us too much the bar was only open from 5 till 11 in the evening which was a bit short we had to go to another hotel for a drink while we waited for our room to be ready also at night there were about six couples in the bar when it shut i think this is a missed chance saying that it would not stop me staying here again

Thank you very much for being kind enough to place a review on Trip Advisor following your stay at our hotel. The hospitality team were delighted to read that you considered them so friendly. We all try very hard to be as helpful as possible at all times and your comments are very encouraging. We must apologise for any disturbance caused by creaky floorboards. We are currently undertaking a programme of maintenance to remedy this issue. All guest feedback is taken very seriously and we greatly appreciate the time taken to place the review. Thank you once again.

Snagged a single room for two night over the weekend for 95 pounds including breakfast. Room was clean, well furnished, ensuite and came with tea making facilities. Hotel is on Corran Esplanade but be advised parking is fairly limited. Wasn't a problem at the weekend but I can imagine it could be during the week. Roughly ten minute walk along the esplanade takes you into centre of town.

Public area were pleasant and comfortably furnished with view out over Oban bay and drinks available from small bar. Breakfast served in the Campa restaurant, usual Scottish items available from the serving dishes. Cereals, pastries and juices provided and plentiful toast.

All in all a very pleasant stay.

The hotel is situated in a excellent position overlooking the bay and close to the town centre.
We arrived and received a warm welcome at reception and were provided with all the facts and information regarding our room and facilities. Later we dined in the Lounge Bar and enjoyed a most reasonable and well presented meal.Reasonable priced compare to other hotels in the area having recently experienced in the past poor food and costing a lot more than the Queens.
The wine served from the bar at £4.00 a large glass was just the finished article.
Our room was located at the rear with a view of the bay, spacious and very clean.
Full Breakfast was very good and hot with Coffee and toast to finish.
Will definitely book again for another stay especially at the rate of £70.00 PPPN for B&B.
Staff were very good and friendly.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are excellent and spacious.

The team and I would like to thank you so much for your brilliant review of our hotel. We cannot emphasise enough how motivational it is to read positive reviews such as yours. We are particularly pleased to read that you found our standard rooms (which are located at the back of the original Victorian building) to be “excellent and spacious”. We also take great pride in serving simply excellent and good value cuisine, so it is great to read that you agreed! Once again thank you.

I believe the Best Western Hotels are now much better that they use to be & was impressed with the Queens. We booked 2 rooms at the last minute via there own site & were given sea view rooms, which were lovely & clean, with good quality furnishings, the Jacuzzi bath with changing lights is a great addition /feature. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, it's good to see it being staffed by many young locals & the night porter was very informative on local amenities (pubs ;0). We ate in the bar & all had fish & chips which was plentiful & well presented, the restaurant was empty, but could be filled if they add some basic dishes like chili, lasagna or some good Scottish fayre. Breakfast was buffet style with lots of choice & good quality food. All area's of the hotel were clean & smart, the only negative was you had to humph your bags up a number of stairs before you can get the lift. Although I'm sure we could have got help if required.

Room Tip: room 43 & 31 sat at the back of the hotel but had a seaview.

Thank you very much for your good review of our hotel. All guest feedback whether positive or negative is extremely important to us here at BEST WESTERN The Queens Hotel. Naturally it is encouraging to get a pat on the back for a job well done and for that we thank you. We are all glad that you enjoyed the accommodation and views in our standard rooms which are located at the rear of the old Victorian building. It was also good to hear that you appreciated the soothing Jacuzzi feature in the bathroom. Furthermore we would like to thank you for eating with us. A lot of guests assume that all hotel food is overpriced and not as good as on offer elsewhere. Thank you so much for pointing out that we offer good food both in the mornings and evenings! We are sorry that you did not appear to have been offered luggage assistance. It is our policy to offer luggage assistance to everyone upon check-in. Thank you once again for placing your review on Trip Advisor.

Went to Oban on the bike and stayed here. Booked through a web site and got a good deal (£79 for 2, b&b). Nice welcome, clean room at rear which meant no noise. Hotel's location is a 2 min walk from centre with beach front location and great view over bay and island. Only one small issue that couldn't be helped was that guests up stairs seemed very heavy footed which we heard. (squeaky floorboards) Was also given a voucher for 20% at restaurant of hotel

Room Tip: choice of views, front onto view but road, rear no view but quiet
